An updated edition to the first edition (1987). A historical reference and modern almanac, this guide surveys the role of Spanish explorers, missionaries, and settlers in the U.S., in addition to offering information on programs and organizations having a special interest in contemporary Hispanic culture. Section I gives an overview of the Spanish arrival and influence in the New World. Section II details state-by-state histories where the Spanish presence was strong, such as in Florida, Texas, and California, and also the lesser-known exploits of the Spanish in New England, the mid-Atlantic states, Alaska, and Hawaii.
